Matching monochrome stripes today. Ok maybe not the ones I’m wearing but certainly the small version are. Again modelled by my 6 year old niece, a fetching pair of tights for her Book Week “The Worse Witch” costume.
Mine, were part of a Christmas present package. They had an impressive wide waistband for comfort. Quite stretchy. Good!
Skulls socks today, since you and I have established that socks are indeed part of the hosiery family. 😆
I’ve had these for years. Bought off the local market. I wear socks when it’s cold but I don’t want to feel too imprisoned. Being on my feet all day has caused my calves to be comparatively muscular and large so I do feel that socks do get a bit stretched over that area. Just me being self concious, but it’s never stopped me developing the hoseoffun style.
Colours define the mood
Isn’t it funny how colours define the mood. I participated in a poll recently conducted by annie@lingeriebound on the colour of hosiery for valentines, which was sexier red or black? Black won if you wanted to know. This led to me connecting my thinkings with how colours are associated with mood. I wore these today, Trasparenze holdups, Tracee pattern in cream. A floral lace design with a slight lacetop and backseam. The comments were good and bought a sense of nostalgia to my colleagues. However if they were in black the consensus would have been how sexy they were and a few raised eyebrows. So isn’t it funny that colour defines what you think and feel?
Tied Up – Trasparenze Chelsea Holdups
Looks like I’m a bit tied up with this pair of holdups called Chelsea. The pattern resembles a rope wrapping round the whole leg in a interlinking wavy way. The tops are slighty lacy with a good amount of clingy rubber to provide them with gravity defying properties. They stayed in position all day with no feeling of any looseness or slippage. They are white and I mean very white so at times I felt a bit clownish but that’s due to me not wearing coloured tights very often and having to have an extra long work day I also put on shoes that didn’t match the outfit. However, I can always count on Trasparenze to provide comfortable and fun hosiery.
Post Christmas/Pre-New Year Blues
How to solve those post Christmas/pre-New Year blues? By wearing a brand new pair of Christmas present hosiery. Ok, I went a bit mad when I added these to my wish list, and got a couple of tights of a colour I wouldn’t normally choose but a little madness has always made my life more fun! These Trasparenze pair of tights are called Gipsy and instead of the more usual black are in white. They are a fancy fishnet so white on skin.
